Rapper 50 Cent was recently called back to bankruptcy court because of the photos he has been posting on Instagram, which do not support the claim that he is broke, a statement that 50 made in a July 2015, bankruptcy court hearing.
Ever since he was discovered by Eminem back in 2002, 50 Cent has fostered an image of himself as a wealthy hustler. For this reason, it was quite a shock to many people when he declared bankruptcy after being fined $7 million for releasing a sex tape of Rick Ross's ex-girlfriend in July 2015.
Although the "In Da Club" rapper was not let off the hook completely for the fine he owed, the court accepted his bankruptcy declaration and let him go without paying the full seven million, reports the New York Post.
In the past few days, however, new evidence has come to light suggesting 50 Cent may have fabricated the story about being dangerously low on funds.
Lastonia Levenson, the woman 50 was supposed to pay the $7 million dollar fine to before he declared bankruptcy, recently happened upon 50 Cent's instagram page, where 50 has, in the time since the July 2015 bankruptcy court hearing, posted photos of himself with large stacks of cash.
